... torpor, which is characterised by controlled reductions of metabolism and body temperature ( T b ). We investigated at what age the precocial king quail Coturnix chinensis can defend a high T b under a mild thermal challenge and whether they can express torpor soon after achieving endothermy to overcome...

...Sean A. Williamson; Stephanie K. Courtney Jones; Adam J. Munn Phenotypic plasticity of organ size allows some animals to manage fluctuations of resource quality or availability. Here, we examined the phenotypic plasticity of the gastrointestinal tract of king quail ( Coturnix chinensis ) in a diet...
